If you’re looking for an effective presentation to help you convince parents, school administrators and school board decision-makers about the need for physical education, check out this video.
This short 4 1/2 minute YouTube video was produced by SPARK, a “research-based, public health organization dedicated to creating, implementing, and evaluating programs that promote lifelong wellness.” It’s presented by Dr. Thom McKenzie, of San Diego State University, and uses whiteboard animation to keep the viewer’s interest while communicating vital facts about the need for PE in our schools. These facts, as per SPARK’s mandate, are based on research, not supposition.
If you’re in a situation where advocacy on behalf of physical education is necessary, you could email a link to this video as a way of sending a message to parents and decision-makers. The video itself is below, but here’s the link: http://youtu.be/rrLne6YVaBQ?hd=1
